The Gender Dimensions of Migration, Refugee Crises, and Human Trafficking

Please join us for a roundtable discussion on the movement of people and the gender dimensions and effects of voluntary and forced migration. Are our international and national legal and political frameworks and institutions adapting to the changing nature of the movement of people in the 21st century? Additionally, gender has historically been neglected by policymakers when considering how to address the many problems that migrants and refugees face, particularly how to combat human trafficking. Although this situation is improving, the gender dimensions of each phenomenon – and how they intersect – are still woefully understudied and dismissed. How does the Women, Peace and Security Agenda intersect with the migratory and refugee and human trafficking agendas?

This Roundtable is enabled through the generous support of the Embassy of Liechtenstein in Washington, D.C.
